Explore the natural world on a mini-beast hunt

Set peacefully amidst sweeping parkland and lush woodland, Florence Court is the 18th-century former home of the Earls of Enniskillen. Its stunning location on the Fermanagh–Cavan border makes it the perfect place to explore heritage and environment. Florence Court brings places to life for children of all ages.
